Glass Poem 



Our high school days we leave behind, 
Our future conquests clear in mind. 
The plans we've made we must fulfill, 
Though clouds of war may threaten still. 

The wealth we have is what we've learned, 
The strength we show cannot he spurned. 
When we conquer self, and our hattle's won, 
Our task in life is then well done. 

We trust in God to show the way, 
To lead us through each night and day, 
And though the path be rough and steep, 
We'll reach our goal; our faith we'll keep. 



— JAMES BAKER

PRESIDENTS ADDRESS 



James Enus 



T H S 



President's Gddless 

Mr. Sturke, members of the School Com- 
mittee, teachers, parents, and students, it is my 
pleasure to welcome you to the Class Day exer- 
cises of the graduating class of 1955. 

We are indeed honored to have been a 
part of this well-organized school. Here we have 
learned much that will be most beneficial to us 
in the future. 

For two years we have functioned as one 
body working together toward an ultimate goal. 
Soon we shall become 140 individuals each seek- 
ing fortune in an insecure world whose future 
at present is precariously hanging in the balance. 

In the past our footsteps echoed through 
the halls of Tenney. However, in a few short 
days, these halls will no longer know our pres- 
ence. 

Although our separation is a sorrowful 
event, we must strive for success so that we 
may some day provide others with the excel- 
lent opportunities we have received here. As 
we patiently work toward our goal may we 
always remember "He conquers who conquers 
himself." 



—JAMES ENUS

Class Olaiion 



"He conquers, who conquers himself" in the Latin is "Vincit qui 
se vincit". As we all know, this is our class motto, by which we have 
tried to live during our four years of high school, and which we hope 
will influence the rest of our lives. But how many of us really under- 
stand the significance of these words? No doubt, we all realize that 
in order for us to become successful men and women we must first 
know ourselves — our weak points as well as our capabilities. So it 
is of utmost importance that we be particularly frank and honest in 
screening our potentialities. After we have come to a truthful evaluation 
of our abilities, then we must resolve to conquer our weaknesses. 
Whether we are successful or not in doing so — that will be the 
true test of our achievement. All along the road of life there will 
be many obstacles to overcome and hardship to be endured. There 
will be hard knocks to challenge us and it is up to us to have the 
courage and determination to pick ourselves up after being knocked 
down, and then to go forward. This is easier said than done, but there 
are many things in life that are not easy. 

I would like to relate to you the inspiring story of one of the 
world's most courageous women, Helen Keller, who succeeded in con- 
quering herself and in so doing serves as a fine example to all mankind. 
Helen Keller was a blind and deaf girl, who when she was scarcely 
one year old, had been taken desperately ill. She was not expected to 
live, but when the fever finally left her, she slowly became well. It was 
some time before it was discovered that the sickness had left her in a 
dark, still room of life, where sights and sounds could never penetrate. 
What was there in life for a child so afflicted? 

This girl with her intensely active mind and a great desire for self- 
expression was obliged to drift through silent, shadowy days and weeks 
of childhood, unlike other children, knowing nothing but the dreary 
solitude to which she seemed doomed. Then almost as a gift from God, 
Miss Anne Sullivan, a patient and devoted teacher, was sent to her. 
Learning to conquer her blindness and her deafness was slow, and 
many times a frustrating process for Helen Keller, but gradually she 
progressed and began to read, to understand, and to be understood. 
Helen Keller was determined to be victor and not be vanquished. 

While she was still very young, she set for herself an almost 
impossible goal — college — and in October, 1896, she did enter the 
Cambridge Preparatory School to prepare for Radcliffe, the college she 
wished with all her heart and soul to attend. Now, there were years 
of hard, unceasing work with difficulties in them enough to discourage 
a normal girl with both sight and hearing. The strain of the work was 
very great ; however, undaunted by having to read examination papers 
in three kinds of Braille and other difficulties, Helen Keller took her 
final examinations and passed ! 

College! On an equal footing with girls who could see and hear! 
Here was a girl among girls — in spite of all her handicaps — in 
spite of days too dark to mention, she lived a story of such courage as 



T H S 



has rarely been equalled. To Helen Keller, dark days were only an 
incentive to overcome more obstacles. 

She once said, "I never fight — except against difficulties". In this 
statement lies the kernel of her real character. From the very first she 
was a fighter, but against enemies of no common kind — against handi- 
caps and obstacles. 

This is the story of Helen Keller, a girl learning to love and live 
and study and appreciate all that her starved nature cried out to under- 
stand and express — a promoter of the welfare of the blind, teacher 
and lecturer, noted for her accomplishments wherever her name is 
known. Talk about courage, about perseverance, about ambition, then 
speak the name of Anne Sullivan Macy's famous pupil, Helen Keller! 

Now fellow classmates, as the time of our departure draws near, 
let us resolve to follow for the rest of our lives the fine example of 
this great and courageous American woman. Remember that with the 
help of our Almighty Greater, we too can accomplish the seeming 
impossible, for "He conquers, who conquers himself".

Class Hidofak 



In a few days, we, the members of the class of 1955, will be 
alumni of Tenney High School. Behind us are memories of some of 
the most enjoyable years of our lives. 

On a bright September morning in 1952, we climbed Baptist Hill 
to become the last sophomore class of the Edward F. Searles High 
School. We were very proud to be there, but also looked up rather 
humbly to the upperclassmen. Everything was so confusing at first — 
especially the rotating schedule of the class periods. Gradually, we 
became accustomed to our new surroundings. 

After electing president, Paul Arold ; vice-president, Edward Spicer ; 
secretary. Helen Bamford; treasurer, Frances Schruender; and Student 
Council members Sheila Allard and Justine Jesser, we at last had the 
feeling that we belonged. 

Then came our memorable Sophomore Reception. After the grand 
march and entertainment, during which the Senior Class President of- 
ficially welcomed us, the lights went out in the middle of a storm. The 
excitement which followed made our reception quite different from any 
other. 

In February came the annual Talent Show. It was our first, and we 
were all proud of Fred Trickett, who represented our class very well, 
winning second prize. 

At Senior Chapel, held on the lawn in June, Mr. Skil lings announced 
the D.A.R. Good Citizenship Awards. Honored from our class, on the 
basis of outstanding character, good sportsmanship, cooperation, and 
scholarship, were Sandra Giles and Fred Trickett. 

Before we realized it, the year was over and we were leaving Searles, 
with its ivy-covered walls and established traditions, for a beautiful new 
high school. 

We were Juniors! Upperclassmen! We chose to lead our class, 
during the first year in our new school, president, Paul Arnold; vice- 
president. Andrew Laurin : secretary, Helen Bamford ; treasurer, Fran- 
ces Schruender; and to represent us on the Student Council, Sheila 
Allard, Peggy Fox, Sandra Giles, and Carole Hoyt, 

This time we were helping the Seniors give the Freshman-Sopho- 
more Reception, since there were two new classes in the high school. 

An election was held later in the year to fill a vacancy in the office 
of class secretary. Justine Jesser was elected. 

The first Talent Show in the new auditorium was held in February. 
Among those participating from our class were the "Valley Ramblers", 
Lennie Fmnegan, Bob Monfet, and Bob Carver, who stole the show — 
and first prize — with their guitars, and rendition of "Cool, Clear 
Water". 



T H S 



That year at Senior Chapel, the Good Citizenship Awards went to 
Carole Hoyte and Fred Trickett. 

September! It hardly seemed possible that we had come so far 
in such a short time, but there we were — Seniors! A few weeks after 
school began, we elected president, James Enus; vice-president, Pete 
Huston; secretary, Mildred Haykal ; and for taking such good care of 
our money, we re-elected Frances Schruender. Phyllis Bunker joined 
Sheila, Peggy, Sandra, and Carole on the Student Council. 

The first Freshman Reception was held on October 29 in the gym, 
with President Enus doing the honors. 

Then came the chance for our more talented classmates to show 
their acting ability. After several weeks of rehearsing, intensive because 
of the early date of the Senior Play, the curtain rose on "Curtain Going 
Up." Under Mrs. Richardson's very capable coaching, the play was a 
success and received many favorable comments. The individual per- 
formances given during the evening indicated the presence of some 
Barrymores in our midst. Corrine Elston was outstanding in her por- 
trayal of Miss Burgess, one of the leading female characters. 

At an impressive ceremony in January, seventeen seniors and 
fifteen juniors were installed as charter members of the Methuen chap- 
ter of the National Honor Society. Seniors elected as officers were Betty 
Kinney, president; Eleanor DiLavore, secretary, and Mary Ann Bennett, 
treasurer. Miss Lange is faculty adviser of the chapter. 

A few weeks later, the annual magazine drive was on, but this 
year, all four classes participated to earn money for their respective 
treasuries. Marilyn Wardwell and Paul Wormald were the top sales- 
men in the Senior class. 

Danny Hajjar did a commendable job as Master of Ceremonies 
at the Talent Show in March. Although no prizes were awarded, each 
class was well represented with talent, and the sponsor of the show 
was that well-known breakfast cereal, "LOST". 

March also brought the forty-ninth annual Military Ball, for which 
the cadets had been practicing for weeks. The grand march was led 
by Cadet Colonel Robert Emmons and Marilyn Wardwell. 

Sandra Giles was elected to represent the school on Good Govern- 
ment Day at the State House in Boston. 

Work was started on our yearbook, and Robert Carter was elected 
editor-in-chief. Chosen to be assistant editors were Mildred Haykal 
and Eve Leoff. 

At an assembly in April, the honors for graduation and class day 
were announced : Eve Leoff, valedictorian ; Marie Max, salutatorian ; 
Sandra Giles, honor essayest; and Mildred Haykal, class orator. From 
the other honor graduates the class chose Jacqueline Viet and Frank 
Savona to write the class will; Peggy Fox, the class history; Eleanor 
DiLavore and Albert Korelishn, the class prophecy. 

To raise money for the Prom, the class sponsored a public whist 
party. In May came our Yearbook Dance, which was a girl-ask-boy 



19 5 5 



affair and appropriately called a "Twirp Twirl". The Band Dance fol- 
lowed, and once again . . . 

... it is June. At Senior Chapel, Mildred Haykal and Fred Trickett 
received the D.A.R Good Citizenship Awards. 

Our Senior Prom was an event to be remembered. The gym, beau- 
tifully decorated to provide a formal setting, showed evidence of the 
many hours that were devoted to planning the highlight of the Senior 
year. Several local organizations contributed time and money to aid 
us in making the affair a success. Following general dancing, we were 
escorted to a movie premiere. To complete the evening, we returned to 
the high school for a delicious supper and professional entertainment. 

On Sunday, June 12, Baccalaureate services were held in the First 
Church Congregational. Our caps and gowns were donned for the first 
time — the girls in white and the boys in blue. 

This is Class Day, and Graduation is but one step away. We look 
back with sadness, with the realization that our days in high school are 
at an end, but look ahead with anticipation to the future. Although each 
of us will go his own separate ways, the friends we have made, and 
the good times and hard work we have had while learning together, 
will never be forgotten. 

At Senior Chapel, Mildred Haykal and Fred Trickett received the 
D.A.R. Good Citizenship Awards. In recognition of their qualities of 
leadership, Sandra Giles and Peter Huston were presented with certi- 
ficates from the Danforth Foundation. 

This year, the American Legion awarded medals to the Senior girl 
and boy who most typify the qualities of honor, courage, scholarship, 
leadership, service, companionship and character. Sandra Giles and 
Robert Carter were the recipients of the medals.

Glass PicpLecij 

SETTING: Naval Base, South Weymouth, Mass. 
TIME: 1975. 

EVENT : The first launching of a rocket to the moon. 

Al : Oh, excuse me, Miss, if I bumped into you. It's so crowded 
here today, one can hardly move. Gee, you look so familiar! Did you 
graduate from Tenney High in 1955? 

Ellie : Why, yes, aren't you Albert Korelishn ? Remember Elea- 
nor DiLavore ? That's me ! 

Al : I thought I had seen you before ! I see you have come to 
see the excitement, too. Did you know that Ed Stanley is going to be 
the brave pilot of the rocket? 

Ellie : Yes, I read about it in your column of "The Pelham 
Chronicle" this morning. Ed is going to be assisted by Bob Emmons 
of co-pilot. Boy, what a pair! With those two working together, they'll 
surely reach the moon. 

Al : That's not all ! Listen to this scoop that I just picked up. 
Some of the engineers include Jack Hall, Frank Savona, and Walter 
Vignault. Also on board will be those noted scientists, Fred Trickett, 
Donald Walbridge, and Chuck Vemis. 

Ellie : I think I see a familiar spectator in the crowd. Why, it 
can't be ! Yes, I do believe it is Chris Demetrea. She has made quite 
a name for herself as a doctor at the "Happy Hearts and Hurry Home" 
Hospital founded by that wonderful team, Doctors James Enus and 
Peter Huston. Working there under the supervision of Peggy Fox, 
Registered Nurse, are the following nurses: Audrey Banks, Justine 
Jesser, Mary Ann Bennett, Maureen Donovan, and Cynthia Hunter. 

Al : By the way, I met Jerry Mambro last week. He told me that 
he is leading his own orchestra now and is featuring Bob Carter and his 
"cool" trumpet. He's playing at the "Morris" Club, where Pat has 
employed Kathy O'Brien and Marie Mercier as hat check girls. 

Ellie : Did you see the "Dave Ciardello Hour" last night on tele- 
vision ? 

Al: Yes, wasn't it wonderful! I see Janet Bentley and Janet 
Wilson are still singing that every popular ballad "Davy Crockett". 

Ellie: Why, There's Nancy Ciccarelli and her triplets! She 
married shortly after she entered Merrimack College. 

Al : Speaking of marriage, did you know that John Kilbane and 
Marilyn Keegan were married recently? 

Ellie : Well, it's about time ! Say, is it true that Ellen Foley. Gloria 
Galusso, Janice Brochu, Dot Grande, and Carol Moss are teachers at 
Tenney High School? 

Al: Yes, Danny Hajjar is the new principal, and Pat Korelishn 

is his private secretary. 



19 5 5 



Ellie: Well, that news, and that brings up the subject of news- 
papers. Corrine Elston has her own paper now. She certainly went to 
the top. Her reporters are Walter Andrews, Diane English, Connie 
McAndrew, and Pat Quinlan. Donald Popielarski edits the "Advice to 
the Lovelorn" column. 

Al : Why, in yesterday's issue I read that the "Andy Laurin Con- 
struction Company" just brought suit against Al Torrisi for running his 
oil truck into one of Andy's new houses. Al's attorney is John Pickles, 
who is fighting the case against Dick Morency. 

Ellie : That's surprising. Dick was always so quiet in school ! 

Al : Well, look who bought a hotel in town — Barbara Harrington, 
and she hired Milton Lebowitz, James Baker, and Billy Burby as 
bell-hops. 

Ellie : Yes, Eddie Fleming was just fired as manager, and Leo 
Chatis took over his position. 

Al: I hadn't heard, but I saw Clyde Demars, Gene Amiss, and 
Stanley Pelcza waiting on tables, and Alice Manning was the cigarette 
girl. By the way, are you still buying for Wilfred Kirkman's Depart- 
ment Store? 

Ellie ; No, as a matter of fact, I'm not. I just opened my own dress 
shop in town. Some of my lovely models are Irene Gentile, Shiela Allard, 
Jean Ratchtfe, and Carole Hoyt. Joan Buturlia, noted designer, creates 
most of the fashions. 

Al : I'll bet you have a successful enterprise. Look ! There's 
Bill Deming, Methuen's latest football coach, with Jack McDermott, 
professor at Wentworth College. 

Ellie: I met them at a luncheon held in honor of Sandra Giles, 
who is running for Governor of Massachusetts. Eve LeofF, Joyce Hil- 
bert, and Judy Lister were also there campaigning for Sandy. 

Al : Before I forget to tell you, Robert McAvoy has a taxi service 
in Lawrence. Carol Gebo, Pat Cyr, Carol Scott, Claire Scaff, and Eunice 
Starta are employed as drivers. Bob also employed Normand Rivard 
and Paul Wormald as his A-l mechanics. 

Ellie: I guess I'll take the bus home. Oh, look! There's Richard 
Aghoian and Arthur Arkelian at the radar controls in the tower. I 
haven't seen them since graduation. 

Al: Well, they certainly made good. Did you know that Roselie 
Angie, Connie DeMarco, Jackie Bonne, and Angie Catalano are secre- 
taries at the Frank Fay Liability Company. 

Ellie : Yes, I heard that Gene Poulin tried to collect for injuries, 
but when Mitch Saab, the adjuster for the company, investigated the 
case, he found that Gene's leg had been falsely put into a cast by a 
quack doctor, Bill Salois. 

Al : The last I heard, Janet Pauk, Jean Boynes, Irene Dalton, and 
Elaine Chengerian were working at the new medical laboratory in 
Methuen as medical technicians. The switchboard operators there are 
Claudette Bretton, Barbara Wlodyka, and Sonya Patenaude. 



T H S 



Ellie: I hear Annette Giordano, Jane Lerned, Bernadette Hamel, 
Janice Patterson, Barbara McGovern, and Lucille Mancini are tellers 
at the Kiver Co-operative Bank. James Holmes is the president, and 
Richard Keene and Ray Abel the managers. 

Al : Well, Bob always did have a head for figures. Is it true that 
he financed Marlene Zazarian's jewelry store? 

Ellie: Yes he did, and he also helped Gail Kellerher and Gloria 
Morency establish the "Drive-in Theater". 

Al : Why, isn't that Harley Freedman? I hear she has opened 
"The Foot Loose and Fancy Free Dancing School". 

Ellie: Right, and Joan Ratcliffe, Carol Rhodes, Barbara Waite, 
and Ruth Sokol are instructors there. 

Al : They sure must give their customers a rough time. By the 
way, do you know what Marie Max, Millie Haykal, and Betty Kinney 
are doing now? 

Ellie : Last I heard, they were in charge of the James Shirton 
Engineering Firm. 

Al : Come to think of it, if you happen to have a toothache, be 
sure to drop in to see Dr. Raymond Ruhmann. You may be one of the 
lucky ones to hit his special bargain — two teeth for the price of one. 
Lovely Jackie Veit assists Ray by holding hands with all the handsome 
male patients. 

Ellie : I'm sure she does her job with efficiency. Frannie Schruen- 
der, who has just been named as head coach of the All-American Girl's 
Basketball Team, stopped in my dress shop last week. She had just 
flown in from the coast via Frank Gellinas' Airline. A few of the 
hostesses working for Frank include Nancy Whittemore, Carol Voight, 
Connie Boucher, Phyllis Bunker, Shirley Charette and Barbara Gilchrist. 

Al : I spent yesterday afternoon in Bill Roeger's Turkish Bath. I 
met Joe Rizkallah and Fred Skaff working there. Art McAvoy's 
laundry supplies the spotless towels. Bob Monfet, John O'Wril, Lenny 
Finnegan, and Phil Spada are his drivers. 

Ellie : I stopped in at Tom Mosson's Beauty Salon last week to 
have my hair done. Tom, who is a male hair stylist, employs Marion 
Brown, Barbara Gagne, Eugene Santos, Eleanor Rumore, Sylvia Strovink, 
and Mary Traina as hair dressers. Marilyn Wardwell is his receptionist, 
and Claire St. Pierre and Ann Doyle are employed as manicurists. 

Al : Look, I think the rocket is about to take off ! I sure hope their 
trip is successful. 

Ellie: There it goes! Well, I guess I had better be going. It w£\s 

nice seeing you again. 

Al : The pleasure was mutual. Perhaps we'll meet again when the 
rocket returns. Bye. 

Ellie : Good-bye, Al.

The Student Council, consisting of fifteen members from the four 
classes, can well he proud of the record they leave behind them. President 
Sandra Giles proved more than worthy of the position accorded her. Mr. 
Alfred X. Law, spending his first year as council adviser, did much to en- 
courage the students in their work. They began their year by establish- 
ing the Point System. This gave way to the successful plans for their 
annual Barn Dance. The were instrumental in forming the Honor So- 
ciety and also made arrangements for the Student Exchange Program. 
A Speaker's Bureau, consisting of five Student Council members, spoke 
at various organizations throughout the town to improve public relations 
between the school and the townspeople. Two conventions were attended 
by the members of the council. 

The council had the distinct honor of presenting a new flag, which 
was donated by an anonymous benefactor, to Mr. Beaumont, principal of 
the school. A profitable sum of money was added to the treasury through 
the stile of book covers, introduced into the school by the council mem- 
bers. For the first time the Student Council published an annual report, 
informing the student body of this year's achievements. These are just a 
few of the successes which are evident of their ardent endeavors through- 
out the school year.

^tubent QoOeinment Zxcltanqe Committee 

On January 1 1, the student body of Tenney High School elected four 
representatives to the Student Government Exchange Hoard. This board, 
along with many others throughout Massachusetts, participated in a 
statewide program sponsored by the Massachusetts Department of Ed- 
ucation. 

On March 7, the Committee spent the day in Xewburyport, studying 
that city's form of government. After visiting classes at the high school 
in the morning and eating in the school cafeteria, the group and their ad- 
viser, Mr. Alfred X. Law, were taken on a tour of the city's industrial 
plants. Hollowing dinner, the students attended a meeting of the Xew- 
buryport city council and learned much about city government. 

When the exchange committee from Xewburyport came to Mcthuen 
March Hi to study our form of government, the group toured our school, 
visited classes, and was taken to places of historical interest throughout 
the town. To complete the study, the students attended the annual town 
meeting in the evening. Each member of the visiting committee was 
given an exchange package containing the town history, a copy of the 
"Blue and White," and pictures of the town. 

The purpose of this program, which was carried out in Methuen for 
the first lime this year, is "to enrich knowledge of town and city govern- 
ment in Massachusetts; to gain greater appreciation of those who render 
competent, faithful public service; and to encourage pupils' pride in their 
local community." 




T/ie Qlee Club 

The Glee Club, now in its second year, has been working diligemtly 
under the direction of Mr. Edward Comtois. All of its seventy-five mem- 
bers are interested in music and enjoy singing patriotic and secular music 
as well as country and popular selections. This group performed at our 
Christmas program where a patriotic number and a lively spiritual were 
very well received. The Glee Club also participated in a radio show which 
was broadcast from our high school. This program, "For Your Approv- 
al," was presented over Station WGCM on January 28, 1955. Plans are 
now being made for the Glee Club to take part in a musical festival at 
Beverly on May 7th.

Tenfieij High, ^eliool Qavib 

We have been very fortunate this year as in the past to have had such 
a fine high school band. You can always count on a fine showing from 
this hand under the leadership of Mr. Harold McDonnell. In past years 
the hands have shown themselves capable of taking high honors in con«- 
claves. Last year at Lexington our hand was recommended for first 
place in B group. This year was no exception. Once again the Tenney 
High Band walked away with high honors. The hand is always heard at 
rallies, football games and assemblies, showing their versatility in play- 
ing marches, popular, and classical pieces.

T/t£ OlcLedla 

Our orchestra is only in its second year of existence, the high school 
having heen without one for many years previously. Its small member- 
ship may have detracted somewhat from its glory, but it has not in the 
least altered the faithfulness of its members in rehearsing. Their ability 
was proved when the orchestra performed for the radio program which 
was broadcast from our school. We hope that our school will continue 
to produce orchestras just as fine in the years to come. 

The orchestra personnel — 1st Violins: Sandra Seglin, John Byrne, 
Gregory Johnson. 2nd Violins: Ruth Ann Habeeb, Mary Lou King, Caro- 
line Mathews, James McMorrow. Clarinet: Marie Drouin. Horn: Stanley 
Pelczar. Trumpet: Robert Carter. Piano: Brenda March, Grace Torrisi, 
Phyllis Szelest. Mrs. Hazel Hadfield, Director. 



Italian Glub 



The Italian Club consisted solely of students studying the second year 
of this foreign language. Meetings were conducted every second week, 
and a musical program usually followed the husiness program. A Winter 
Social was held on February 9th, 111.15 at the Rendez-vous Restaurant, 
where an Italian supper was served. Music for the general dancing was 
supplied by students' records. The club plans its sixth annual excursion 
to Boston, which will terminate the year's activities, and will he held on 
June 1, 1955. Also, an Italian style supper will he enjoyed by those who 
attend the excursion. 

The officers of the Italian Club are- Alfred Torrisi, president; Philip 
Spada, vice-president; Dorothy Grande, secretary; Harley Freedman, 
treasurer. The club is under the supervision of Mr. William Piccerillo.

Although the football team did not break into the win column too 
often this season, their spirit and sportsmanship at all times made them 
a true credit to our school. As it turned out, our team was scheduled to 
play against much stronger and larger teams; nevertheless, the boys were 
in there fighting all the way. Captain "Chuck" Vernis was a capable lead- 
er, as he encouraged his teammates by his fine example of spirit and ball 
playing. Coach "Dixie" Sheehan was ably assisted by Ralph Wolfendale, 
who did a good job in handling the line. The Andrew Haldane Memorial 
Trophy was awarded to a most deserving senior, Peter Huston, for his 
outstanding athletic performance, sportsmanship, and citizenship. 

For the first time this year, the team chose 
a "Football Queen." The lucky recipient of this 
honor was Sheila Allard. Chuck crowned Sheila 
at the Punchard rally in the auditorium. The 
Queen, as she marched in front of the band, 
majorettes, and cheerleaders the day of the 
Punchard game, was the pride of Tenney High.

QkU' "field Hockey 

Field Hockey was successfully introduced into the girls' sports pro- 
gram at Tenney High School this fall. The enthusiasm shown for this 
new sport was excellent. However, because the varsity team was formed 
so late in the season, there was only opportunity for two games to he 
played with other schools and both of them were played away from home. 
With the greater part of the varsity squad returning in the fall, Coach 
Chadwick is assured a successful season next year. At an assembly be- 
fore the entire student body, Mr. Beaumont presented twelve members of 
the squad with their varsity letters.

showed up for first practice. Among the turnout were four seniors, 
Frank Fay, Jack Pickles, Richard Aghoian, and Mitchell Saab. Under the 
leadership of captain Jack Pickles the team is hoping for a successful 
season. 

The returning lettermen are Frank Fay, Jack Pickles and Jack Ri- 
nuis. Captain Pickles is in the mile and high jump events; Fay is a mile 
and broad jump man; Aghoian, a new man to the team, is a shot-put, 
100 yard dash, and broad jump man; while Saab, also a new man, is out 
for the 100 yard dash and shot-put.

Methuen High's 1955 golf team is the most promising team we have 
had in a long time. The team is captained by veteran Ronald Kirkman, 
who is present Caddy Champion of the Merrimack Valley Country Club. 
The team was recently augmented by the return of veteran golfers George 
Max and Eugene Poulin. Other promising members of the team are 
Eddie Sobel, Bob DeCenzo and Danny Perry. The two young experience- 
seeking alternates are Joe Sobel and Tony DeEuscio. 

The Tenney High golf team is playing a tough schedule, but they are 
sure to make a good showing in every match.

@6\js' Saskethall 



The basketball picture at Tenncy High ap- 
peared none too bright this past fall. There were 
only a few players on the squad with varsity ex- 
perience. Hut strenuous practice sessions under 
the guidance of Coach Harry soon had the team 
functioning well. During the season our team 
provided many exciting games where individual 
and team play were outstanding. The regular 
season's record stands at 16-7. For the second 
year in a row the Tenncy quintet qualified for 
play in the "Tech Tourney Prelims." The im- 
mediate basketball picture of Tenncy is bright, 
because the entire squad will return in the fall.

Third Row: Lister, Dietrich, B. Hajjar, Miss Chadwick, (coach;) Watkins, L. Hajjar ( capt. -elect) C. Strovink, 



The girls' basketball team, led by Gail Kelleher and coached by Miss 
Dorothy Chadwick ended the season with a record of eight wins and one 
defeat. With Marty Dietrich cutting fast for lay-up shots and jumping 
high for the rebounds, Val Laveille and Bev Welsh divided the pleasures 
of sharp-shooting. C. Thwaites' promising ability in passing revealed a 
great display of team-work. On the opposite end of the court, the guards 
did an equally good job, keeping the opposing forwards on the move. 
Barbara Hajjar excelled in controlling the backboard, while "little" Dot 
Grande gave even the tallest forwards a rough time. Gail Kelleher, caj> 
tain of the team, deserves congratulations for leadership and great assist- 
ance in guarding and rebounding. Credit is due to J. Lister, C. Hoyt, C. 
Strovink and I). Havgalia who served as alternates. Well deserving cap- 
tain elect, Barbara Hajjar, will have the entire team with the exception of 
only four seniors to work with for an equally successful season next year.

The 15);");") baseball team was eager to get ofT to an early start in 
spring training under the direction of Coach Harry. Greatly encouraged 
by the success of last season they are out to improve their record. 

Captain Phil Spada and his Rangers hope to make 1955 a memorable 
season by winning the Merrimac Valley Championship a s they did in 
the 1954 season. 

In the games they have shown flexibility and cooperation. Many 
thrilling games were the result of their combined ability.
